Dragons & cloth armour

ZbacoZbaco Posts: 93Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
So, I understand that dragons are only able to wear cloth armour for the sole purpose of having access to paragons. Unmodified, it provides no cutting/blunt protection whatsoever, with both resistances at 0% when weaponprobed. However, I noticed the other day that I can sketch gebu/gebo runes on a set. When probed, it shows 4% per. Is this indeed a true, real increase in protection? Or is it basically increasing zero resistance by 4%, which is still zero?

    Probably just an oversight. Would bug it if I were you.

    To answer the actual question, I'm pretty sure gebo/gebu are static increases (which means it'd be an increase for dragons), not based on the base armour stats, but I could be wrong.
    Huh. Neat.

    It's a flat 4% increase regardless of base stats. Can be sketched on shields as well.

    Perks of Runie dragons with access to cloth armour and paragons unless it's a bug.

    I do know the armor rune effects become inert when you switch class and go dragon.

    So...if I rune up my cloth armour beforehand with the +4% runes, dragonform, then put the armour on...it's not actually doing anything? Even if I can weaponprobe it and still see the increases there?

    Easiest way to see this is the difference between sketched/unsketched armour. It's +4 resist. Not resist * 1.04. 52/52 plate becomes 56/56 not 52*1.04. (additional, not multiplicative).

    So yes, Zbaco, you do get a benefit from it.

    Got it, just wanted to make sure I understood it correctly. Thanks.

    Dragonform is not a class switch. I meant... runing up your armor and shield... switching to bard and then d-forming... since by default, armor runes and shield runes are already rendered inactive when you change to a different class and then dform.
